AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Cici Alexander, AIAS Fellow

The Third Dimension: From Point Cloud to Carbon and Connectivity

2017.12.12 | AIAS

Date Mon 09 Apr
Time 14:15 16:15
Location The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C


Point clouds generated from Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS), using the technique of LiDAR, can be used to describe the three-dimensional (3D) structure of terrestrial features. Attributes extracted from LiDAR point clouds are used for estimating above-ground biomass to quantify carbon stock. 2D measures of landscape connectivity has limitations in estimating the fragmentation of habitats. This seminar will present a few advantages of adding the third dimension to geospatial analysis, with emphasis on ecological applications in Denmark.

What is a Fellows' Seminar?

The AIAS Fellows' Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellow or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.

All seminars are held in English and open to the public. Registration to the seminar is not necessary.  Read more about the AIAS Fellows' Seminar here.
